Learning From Nature

Getting Batty

One thing I love about Kansas is finding wild life all around us.  From wild turkeys, I had no idea they really flew till we moved to Fort Riley, to coyotes walking down the road.  This day we where in town for some shopping and seen this bat soaking wet from that mornings rain just sleeping on a wall.  We got to get a truly close up view of a wild bat.  Watched it breath,  discussed how it was hanging off the wall upside down, what they eat, why it was sleeping in the morning  even why we thought it did not make it home. Talk about unplanned lessons.  I find this recollection perfect for Halloween.  Have a batty day and keep your eyes open you never know what you may come across.

Ring of Fire Eclipse May 2012

I was much to excited about this one.  In may we had the big annular eclipse and where lucky enough to get a partial view of the ring of fire eclipse from our location in Kansas.  I shopped for the makings of smores, dug out a clip board and binoculars to project the image of the sun for everyone to see.  Found our family enjoying a great evening on top of the hill behind our home watching the eclipse with a wonderful family of complete strangers.  One of the great things about homeschool is enjoying the world for a classroom and many new people as classmates.
